HADITH (Traditions of the Prophet Muhammad Peace be Upon Him)

Sayyadina Anas bin Malik (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said, "Let none of you wish for death on account of an affliction that befalls him. If he has no alternative, let him pray: `Allahumma ahyine ma kanatil-hayatu khairan li, wa tawaffani idha kanatil-wafatu khairan li (O Allah! Give my life so long as the life is good for me, and take away my life if death is good for me) ‘.’' [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Commentary: Here, too, a believer has been prevented from wishing for death. Because it betrays that he is far from agreeing to what Allah wills or has ordained. If at all his wishing becomes intense and indispensable under the pressure of circumstances, he should pray in the Prophetic words mentioned in the Hadith above.
